Bills | EJ Manuel struggles with deep ball

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 18:22:15 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel struggled with deeper passes in Week 3, completing just three of his 12 attempts. He didn't have a completion for more than 16 yards. Prior to Week 3, just 17 percent of Manuel's pass attempts had traveled more than 10 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Manuel had largely avoided deeper passes in the first two weeks as Buffalo jumped out to early leads, but he really struggled when the Bills fell behind in Week 3 and he was forced to be more aggressive down the field. Unless Manuel can improve on deeper throws, it is going to lead to inconsistent performances from Sammy Watkins and the team's other receivers.

Bills | Cordy Glenn cleared

Mon, 18 Aug 2014 15:12:54 -0700

Buffalo Bills OT Cordy Glenn (illness) has been cleared to participate in team drills, according to head coach Doug Marrone. The team will see how he performs during practice before deciding if he will play in the third preseason game.

Fantasy Tip: Glenn has miss most of training camp because of an undisclosed illness but has time to prepare for the start of the season. His presence on the offensive line should help the values of EJ Manuel, C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson, because he is a Pro Bowl player.

Bills | EJ Manuel, Sammy Watkins show chemistry

Sun, 20 Jul 2014 18:43:37 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel went 4-for-4 on passes to WR Sammy Watkins during team drills Sunday, July 20.

Fantasy Tip: The fantasy value of both players hinges on how well they can connect, and Sunday's results were definitely a good start. Watkins should still be drafted as a WR3 at this point, but his stock is only going to rise if he and Manuel continue to show chemistry.

Bills | EJ Manuel expected to shine

Tue, 15 Jul 2014 15:09:07 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel should do big things this season, considering how much he's grown mentally and physically, according to C Eric Wood.

Fantasy Tip: Manuel showed signs of stardom last year, but also showed signs of inconsistency, partly due to injuries. He doesn't have the greatest wide receiver corps at hand, but his dual threat ability makes him an intriguing backup option in standard leagues.

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 18:02:30 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel said he wants to play smarter when he runs with the ball because he does not want to suffer another injury.

Those are all the nuances I had to learn." Manuel said he is 100 percent healthy and stronger than he was last season.
